MECHGR99 Project Report
To individual project aims to develop independent research and project management skills and to improve technical writing and critical analysis ability. The student will be required to conduct an individual piece of research over an extended period of time and to produce a coherent body of work to a deadline.
Guidance will be provided by an academic supervisor but it is expected that the work and effort is driven and managed by the student. The output consists of a presentation followed by a question and answer session and a theses of up to 10,000 words.

The individual project may cover any subject so long as it contains sufficient academic content and is relevant to mechanical engineering. Projects maybe practical or theoretical, projects that are just literature reviews are not encouraged. The project topic is usually selected by the student from a list of projects suggested by members of staff. Students are not guaranteed their first choice of project. Students may suggest their own project topic provided a member of staff is willing to adopt and supervise that project. Approval for a self suggested project should be sought as soon as possible and no later than January. Projects can be with industrial partner. Projects that are military or commercially classified are not acceptable.
